What is BOTOX?
When you have facial lines that do not go away when your face is relaxed, you may benefit from BOTOX injections at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics in Castleton, NY. We can diminish facial wrinkles and lines from the top portion of the face with several well-placed injections of BOTOX.
This injectable treatment provides incredible results and is highly regarded among both men and women. BOTOX can make a dramatic improvement to facial wrinkles, which are created by making expressions with the contracting muscles on the upper face. BOTOX is a filtered strain of botulinum toxin (type A) that temporarily stops movements of the muscle for a few months. BOTOX is injected to smooth the skin. You may ask for BOTOX injections between your eyebrows where the number "11" appears (glabellar area), on Crow's feet, and throughout the forehead.

Can I have BOTOX injections?
BOTOX is used for men and women to temporarily delay the visible look of wrinkles, lines, and moderate folds on their upper face without surgery. We provide BOTOX injections as a preventive anti-aging treatment even if you do not show signs of aging. Remember, you are constantly making facial expressions and forming wrinkles all the time, and BOTOX can help your skin by not allowing the injected muscle to move. It is a great noninvasive approach if you are frustrated by forehead wrinkles or noticeable furrows between the brows. It is also a solution for Crow's feet around the eyes. If you are over the age of 50 with moderate-to-severe skin laxity, you may need a more invasive approach to wrinkle reduction.
Dr. Padma's BOTOX Injection Technique
BOTOX injectable treatments are performed here in our office at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics. If it is your first time to visit for BOTOX injections, we often perform the injection during the same appointment as your consultation. You will be asked to make various expressions using the upper face, such as frowning, squinting, smiling, and more. This allows Dr. Padma to pinpoint where the BOTOX injections need to be placed. We will clean your face before the BOTOX is injected through a fine needle. Then, we will follow up with a cold compress to decrease your discomfort, swelling, and bruising. You can ask for a numbing cream to make the injections more comfortable, but it usually is not necessary. BOTOX injections can take around 10 – 15 minutes, after which you can resume your usual activities.
After BOTOX INJections
Following your injection session, you can resume your regular schedule. Dr. Padma may recommend that you avoid strenuous activities like exercise for at least 24 hours. You will be asked to sleep with your head elevated for the first night and to avoid touching your face. The treated areas of your face may become red, bruised, or swollen for 2 – 3 days, but you should not experience any serious or lasting side effects. In most cases, it takes about 5 – 7 days before the full effects of BOTOX are visible. The results generally last 3 – 4 months. We can schedule your follow-up appointment quarterly at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics to maintain your results.
